COVID-19 Impact on Goodwill of the Heartland Operations

Updated March 20, 2020

We need your support right now more than ever.  When this is all over, there will be an overwhelming community need for our employment services.

Remember that Goodwill of the Heartland is a non-profit charitable organization and that we rely on our retail stores to fund our mission - advancing the social and economic wellbeing of people who experience barriers to independence.  We have seen a significant decline in retail sales over the past few weeks and we are understandably concerned. 

Please consider an online financial donation.  Your contribution will help carry our organization through this difficult time.  It will also ensure that we are prepared to meet the demand for assistance that we know is coming.  Our goal is to be a leader in getting people back to work after this crisis has passed.
